What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger!
As we build our ecommerce business to its long awaited completion I am so grateful that I am in the position to share my own experience so as to help others on their similar journey. .
One of my favourite messages is to never give up on your entrepreneurial dream.
We have come across various obstacles on our journey. At times things seemed to have fallen apart and took us close to breaking point. But we never succumbed and always battled on. This is pretty much the story of my life, and it is a story I’m proud to tell.
Life is about overcoming adversity. With each small victory comes a sense of pride in yourself and what you’ve achieved.
Embracing adversity in your life and the lessons it brings builds your character and inner strength. In fact it makes us stronger!
US Open champion Justin Rose said:
“Winning just makes you realise and reminds you about why you practice hard and why you play the game.
“It’s not necessarily the trophy that feels so great, it’s knowing that you’ve answered the doubts in your own head, you’ve answered the questions, you’ve taken on the challenge and you’ve risen to it.
“Those feelings of self-accomplishment are great in the moment and I think that that’s what inspires you to try and win more golf tournaments.”
His message is strong and clear, never give up your journey towards your dreams. Wake up every morning and face the pressures that come your way with confidence and the heart to know you cannot fail.
His coach Sean Foley said “People go back to the start of his career, the 21 missed cuts. But if we look at adversity in the right light, it provides a foundation for growth.”
We all have to accept that failure is a necessary step towards success. Whatever trophies we desire, you have to expect defeats before victory. We all learn the most from the pain of our defeats, and we make sure we learn from them because we don’t want to experience to many.
So take defeat as adversity for what it is, a lesson on the road to victory. So keep working, keep practicing and keep going.
